Did the Board of Veterans Appeals deny your TDIU claim? Ignore your lay evidence and sworn statements, or require corroboration of an assault? Or even worse, find your statement or evidence not credible. Did it deny an earlier effective date for your claim despite clear evidence that the VA owes you more retroactive pay? Fail to get an examination or medical opinion despite clear entitlement, or your spouse died from a disease caused by toxic exposure to herbicides or burn pits? If so, you may need an attorney from Lowry Veterans Law Ltd.

At Lowry Veterans Law, our attorneys specialize in assisting veterans with appeals to the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC). This Court is pivotal in reviewing final decisions made by the Board of Veterans' Appeals (BVA), offering veterans a crucial opportunity to challenge decisions on claims such as service connection, increased ratings, TDIU, and more.

Why Appeal to the CAVC?

The CAVC operates independently from the VA, ensuring an impartial review. There are no costs for the veteran or surviving dependents when represented at the Court, with legal fees covered under the Equal Access to Justice Act (EAJA). The CAVC has historically returned over 70% of Board decisions due to VA errors. Typically, the Court responds within 8-10 months, providing swift resolutions. A favorable CAVC decision will guide the Board on the next steps of your claim.

Lowry Veterans Law Ltd. Is the Right Representation.

You can do it yourself or pro se, but having an attorney is crucial given the adversarial nature of CAVC cases. Our attorneys possess advanced legal training, offering a significant edge in understanding and winning appeals. Unlike VA-accredited representatives, an attorney of the CAVC Bar can effectively counter the VA's massive legal department, safeguarding your rights. You do not pay our legal fees. We bill the government under the EAJA, and the VA limits fees for unsuccessful appeals.

Quick action is necessary – you have 120 days from the BVA decision to file your CAVC appeal.
